No More Daily Snooze?

[caption id="attachment_3013" align="alignnone" width="410"]The Daily News may be dying, but at least it's making some noise. The Daily News may be dying, but at least it's making some noise.  It's good to see.  When it was known as "New York's picture newspaper," the News sold over 3 million copies a day across the country and dominated the tabloid world.  It's 1976 headline, "Ford to City:  Drop Dead!" probably helped Jimmy Carter beat Gerald Ford.  It'll probably never have that kind of influence, but at least it's serving as a counterpoint to its right-wing sensationalist competitor, the New York Post[/caption]

Paul Ryan Got Federal Funds To Help With Bush-Era GM Plant Closure He Blames On Obama

Paul Ryan has turned out to be the perfect match for Mitt Romney. His history, positions and statements are vague, contradictory, hypocritical or downright false. Will his lies haunt him through the campaign? Will his supporters hold his hypocrisy against him? Probably not. He gave the GOP ticket a burst of energy, and it's unlikely that the enthusiasm among his supporters will wane as long as he part of the alternative to a second Obama administration. Can Democrats tarnish him without being accused of negativity? It'll be hard. Unlike Mitt, he's a very polished performer. But they have a shot if they can force him out of the closet and reveal his true social programs and use his words against him. August 17, 2012 GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan took a swipe at President Barack Obama on Thursday for failing to rescue a General Motors factory in his Wisconsin congressional district, calling it "one more broken promise" on the Democratic administration's record. "I remember President Obama visiting it when he was first running, saying he'll keep that plant open," Ryan said during a campaign stop. "One of the reasons that plant got shut down was $4 gasoline. You see, this costs jobs. The president's terrible energy policies are costing us jobs." The attack has already received a fair amount of ridicule because the Janesville, Wis., plant actually closed during the last year of George W. Bush's presidency. What hasn't really been emphasized is whether Ryan clearly knew this and made the charge nonetheless.

The Secret to Solar Power

Harnessing the power of the sun has been a dream for generations. But fossil fuels still have a virtual monopoly on energy production and vehicular power, and enhanced access to domestic natural gas has made it extremely economical and more popular than ever for generating electricity. The failure of Solyndra cast a shadow over the commercialization of solar power in America, but the Chinese continue to see it as an emerging and already profitable market. And it appears that some entrepreneurs in California are developing business models to make it profitable here. August 9, 2012 The future of solar belongs to whoever can convince consumers that it’s not just for tree-huggers and rich people.
